A Vision for Healthy Weight Across the Lifespan of
American Indians and Alaska Natives
Overweight and obesity are driving up high rates of chronic disease in American Indians and Alaska Natives. Promoting a healthy weight at all stages of life is critical to improving our health and well-being. The Indian Health Service encourages you to take action now to fight obesity and raise our physical, mental, social, and spiritual health. Join the thousands of Native Americans who are participating in innovative nutrition, physical activity, and weight management programs.
Now is the time to put our minds and resources together to address the problem of overweight and obesity. We all have a role to play. It’s up to you to decide what actions you’ll take and how you’ll chart your journey.
